Richezze held his line and Ewan ran into him.


He kept looking at Ewan then moved into him when he was about to kick. Richeze should be thrown off the race.

Had to bridge a big gap to a large group of sprinters who were going full gas, get past them, and beat the ones at the front. Amazing.

Richeze did nothing wrong. It was Ewan who tried to jump through a gap that wasn't there.


Yeah it looked like Ewan tried to force his way out, his positioning has been hit and miss but you also need some luck but the form Gaviria is in I'm not sure it would have made much difference.

Yeah... you're right. Gaviria's been having nothing but trouble beating Ewan. Only managed it four times so far. :p

You are talking nonsense, Richeze hardly moved, look at the heli shot.

He was watching him and leaned when he seen he was coming into him. Its how you don't crash when someone makes a stupid move in a race.

Close for Bennett. So Sagan gets this monstertrain in the Tour right, that can be fun.

Yes, he's a very good sprinter. But let him develop further as a rider.

Its not nonsense at all.Who is better? Cav is sick. He easily beats Greipel. As I said, only Kittel is faster. But you will probably come up with Bouhanni or Demare. :lol:

I think they are going to play the Gaviria card a couple of times in the tour too. Would be stupid if they don't.

Cavendish is still faster I'd say (when not with mono) and Greipel in a straight line is probably faster. Unfortunately for him Giro sprints are twisty.

The national card you're using is very poor.

As I said, Gaviria is a very good sprinter. But calling him "best sprinter in the world" is nonsense (in my opinion) because he still has to prove it on the biggest stage, when you expect top sprinters to battle it out.

You really think Greipel is faster? I don't... and even if he is, he is often too hesitant and/or scared. And thats obviously also a big part in sprinting.

Cav, I dno. Maybe he is faster.

Gaviria is in rare form - Wonder if he'll ride the Vuelta ?

But why is it nonsense? Even if he can develop further, he is already the best sprinter at the moment.

In a flat, straight 200 metre drag race, I'd put my money on Greipel. His positioning is becoming very poor though.

Cavendish's performance last year at the Tour suggests to me he is.

Your comment reminds me Cédric Vasseur, when he was saying last year on TV that Diego Ulissi was the best puncheur in the world in the month of May.

I said probably the best sprinter as he he is able to do much more than your traditional sprinter. I've seen enough so far.

Cavendish is defintely the most versatile sprinter, he can go long, short, uphill, flat, corners, straight, he's done it all. Gaviria reminds me a little bit of McEwen, although their styles are very different, but in that their greatest asset is a tremendous inital acceleration.
